August 7th, 2017| When you get hurt because of another person’s negligence, you may need extensive medical treatment. But this can keep you out of work for weeks, months, or even years. Losing the paycheck you rely on can make keeping up with day-to-day living expenses difficult, and it only gets harder once your medical bills begin to add up. At Berg Injury Lawyers, we know that many victims are most concerned about how they’re going to pay for their initial medical bills and their families’ cost of living in the aftermath of their injuries. Unfortunately, we also know that insurance companies take advantage of the “sticker shock” many victims experience when they get their first medical bills. That’s why they’re able to offer lowball settlement offers, which many victims accept. Having an experienced California personal injury lawyer on your side can help protect you from accepting unfair deals from the insurance company. We’ll work hard to help you get maximum compensation by:
- Gathering evidence that proves you weren’t at fault – Insurance companies are reluctant to pay full settlements if they can’t prove that a victim wasn’t at fault for his or her injuries.
- Calculating your current and future accident-related expenses – The expenses you’re facing right now can seem overwhelming, but they may just be the tip of the iceberg. We’ll determine the potential costs of your time away from work, rehabilitation, and follow-up surgeries and treatments and do our best to help you get these expenses covered by insurance.
